Unable to cast votes on certain TV titles

Voting for certain television shows, like Siberia (2013) is not possible, because the page claims it's "Not Yet Released". Earlier, you could work around this problem by making some changes in my Account Settings, but that no longer works. Could IMDB finally fix this issue that's been reported quite many times, since the quick fix isn't working anymore. Thank you.

This can usually be fixed by submitting a Production Status of 'Released' in the update form, which I have now done. The show currently has a post-production status.

I'm curious to know which account settings you were referring to.

I believe at one time, one could vote for a film regardless of status in the reference view. This is no longer the case.

Previously, if you changed your account settings to show the 'reference view', you could work around this problem.

And no way am I EVER again going to use the IMDB update section again. When applying for welfare/gun permit/insert any government agency here consumes less time, effort and bureaucracy than to get through the Imdb's update section, you know not to waste time there...It's a nighmare.
